Research Hub Opens in Endicott

Broome County Executive Barbara J. Fiala was on hand Monday to help officially open the Center for Advanced Microelectronics Manufacturing in Endicott. The CAMM, as it is known, is located at the Huron Campus and is in partnership with Endicott Interconnect Technologies.

The CAMM will pioneer microelectronics manufacturing research and development in a roll-to-roll format. The United States Display Consortium chose Binghamton University to oversee the project and to help launch its commercial potential.

"This is about as cutting edge as you can get and I am so proud that Broome County can say the CAMM is here and operating in our community," said Executive Fiala. "The University deserves much praise for its dedication and commitment on this project. It was the University's stellar research reputation that allowed us to land the CAMM in the first place."

The development of the CAMM in Endicott began in 2005 and was officially inaugurated at a news conference on Monday, March 31st.

Major technology companies from around the world have already visited the CAMM to explore its potential applications and many more are expected to come to determine its commercial prospects.

County Executive Fiala is currently working with the University and state officials to develop an incubator in our community that can be utilized by scientists and researchers interested in working with the CAMM. The incubator can also be available for other technology transfers out of Binghamton University.
